Latasha Ngwube

Vanguard Allure
Editor/Lifestyle Journalist
Latasha Ngwube’s career path has been so multi-faceted, that many may find it a bit challenging to exclusively define who she is. This is actually an advantage, as it means there’s really no one else she can be compared to in her fields of specialization.
She is one of Africa’s most dynamic Creative Entrepreneurs. Latasha is a noted Media Personality, Fashion & Lifestyle Analyst, Journalist, Creative Director, Editor and model. She is also a Body Positivity Advocate and founder of About that Curvy Life, Africa's premier online destination, aimed at inspiring and supporting the plus-size community.
Her foray into the journalism world started in her late teens to early 20s via an unconventional path – as a makeup artist. And so when she landed an opportunity as a junior fashion editor with Sound City’s now defunct BLAST magazine she ran with it. In 2007, Latasha joined Thisday Style as a beauty writer, and then naturally transitioned into being a fashion/lifestyle writer.
Latasha has had the opportunity of interviewing iconic figures in the entertainment industry both locally and internationally, including Lionel Richie, Erykah Baduh, Black Eyed Peas, John Legend, Tyson Beckford, etc. 2011 saw her joining Vanguard Newspapers’ Allure Magazine as an assistant Editor, a position she holds till date. She also became the lead host for Africa’s most popular fashion jury and lifestyle tv show, Glamsquad. The program was syndicated across Nigeria and eventually Africa.
In 2015, About that Curvy Life was born as a hashtag movement. ATCL is the first internationally acclaimed online body positivity movement. In just under two years since its birth, it has gone ahead to achieve the first ever plus size catwalk show in Africa at the Heineken Lagos Fashion and design week in October 2016. Since then the ATCL Collective has been featured on CNN, BBC, Euronews and many other respected platforms as well as showcased at Arise Fashion Week & Glitz Africa Fashion Week in Accra. Latasha is also the host of HotTopics, a weekly tv show on Linda Ikeji TV that quickly took the entertainment scene by storm.
